Trying to get started with Dronekit on Edison with APSync

I setup my Edison board in the Pixhawk 2 with the APSync image as described on the Companion Computer wiki and everything is working well. Now I’m trying to get started with Dronekit. I saw that all the components are installed including STIL by running pip freeze so I put a copy of the examples in the apsync home folder and tried to run one. No luck. Since I didn’t do the setup I’m not sure what’s wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

You will have to describe what went wrong. I.e. what errors you encountered.
Also Is dronekit running on the edison (alongside APSync) or on another computer?
